Friday, Oct 8, 2010 4:25PM
Young Money rapper Drake's "Forever" producer Boi-1da has called out Kanye West over him speaking on other beatmakers stealing swag.
Although airing out his views via Twitter, Boi-1da made sure to inform his followers he is not looking to spark a beef.
"Lol @ Kanye West talking bout stealing swag, when hes made a career of sampling records SMDH #TheAudacity," Boi tweeted Friday (October 8).
"i mean dudes one of the greatest ever, but ... smh"
"@ChristianoHo no beef, just speaking my mind" (Boi-1da's Twitter)
Boi is reportedly referring to Yeezy's lines from the new "Deuces" remix which also features Drake, Andre 3000, T.I. and Fabolous.
I don't know exactly what Boi-1da is referring to but here are Kanye's lyrics on the 'Decues' remix. Anybody else know another story? "Girl seducers, they come in Deuces/when I cut 'em off they always become a nuisance/n***as take my old flows and they take my old swag/he just took my old b**ch and turn it to his new b**ch/hehe, I'm stupid."

As of late, West has been kept busy working on his upcoming new album.
Kanye West has given fans some extended (and sometimes unsettling) glimpses inside his psyche lately, from his decadent Dalí-esque video for "Power" to the pristine troupe of ballet dancers who surrounded him during his recent performances on "Saturday Night Live." So it's only fitting that the title of his next album should reflect the summation of his alternately playful and twisted soul: the record will be called "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," Mr. West wrote Tuesday morning on his Twitter account. Mr. West said the first song on the album would be "Dark Fantasy," a track produced by RZA and co-produced by No I.D. and Mr. West, and the next single to be released would be a song called "All of the Lights."

The project will be released in late November.
Kanye West finally confirmed on Twitter yesterday that his upcoming album will be released on November 22nd. Despite early word that the album would titled Good A** Job, Kanye tweeted that Fantasy "is and always was" the name of his fifth album. "The first song on the album is called 'Dark Fantasy' produced by The Rza co-produced by me and No I.D.," Kanye wrote. He added that some of his G.O.O.D. Friday free downloads will appear on Fantasy.
